Summer Art Camp

About Summer Art Camp

Harwood Art Center, located in downtown Albuquerque, offers multi-disciplinary summer art camp for youth entering grades 1-9. Since 1996, Harwood’s summer programing has fostered creativity and curiosity in young artists of all skill levels. We offer four two-week sessions throughout June and July with full and half day options.

They will experience a range of exciting activities in a positive, supportive atmosphere. From ceramics and painting, to theater and music, imaginations are unleashed.

OUR STAFF

Our Teaching Artists and Guides share our commitment to lifelong learning and creative expression, and they all have experience working with children. Our Teaching Artists are accomplished in their diverse fields and maintain professional artistic careers. Teaching Artists and / or Guides are present throughout all activities, providing enrichment, support and supervision at all times.

LUNCH

Students are required to bring their own sack lunch and snack (one for morning and one for afternoon) with them to camp. We are a nut free campus, so please don't send nuts, nut butters or any snacks with nuts in them. In the past we have been able to offer sack lunches for purchase through the Harwood Cafe. The cafe is currently in transition and we aren't sure yet it this will be an option. Once we know, we will post more information here and send out an email to all registered families.

HARWOOD STORIES

Susan Klebanoff

Susan Klebanoff


Former Resident Artist

I had the good fortune to be an artist at the Harwood Art Center from 1996 – 2005. It was wonderful being in a community of artists that were so creative and supportive of each other. Having just arrived in NM in ’96, it was particularly meaningful for me because I did not know anyone in this state, and it enabled me to create immediate friendships with like minded people. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work at Harwood and believe that the [Harwood] Art Center is vital to the neighboring community.

Susan Klebanoff is an internationally recognized contemporary tapestry artist who lives and works in Albuquerque. She kept a studio at Harwood Art Center from 1996 – 2005.
